Shenvi EC, El-Kareh R. Diagnosis. 2014;2:3-19.
This review determined several candidate trigger criteria for retrospectively identifying diagnostic errors in hospitalized patients. These included triggers that are already in use for detecting adverse events (such as cardiopulmonary arrest or unplanned transfer to a higher level of care) and novel triggers (including change in code status and need for multiple subspecialty consults).
